About Us & Our Vendors
What started as a passion for all things Michigan in 2008 as a teenager, owner Colleen McClue has grown Made In The Mitten into one of the top selling artisan markets in the state. Made In The Mitten focuses on exposing local art to local people, as well as to Michigan transplants around the world. McClue started with 12 initial artists in Downtown Royal Oak, and has quickly grown to more than 80 small businesses within the last 3 years.
Owner Colleen McClue has been present in the local Downtown Royal Oak area since 2012, and has invested her time, money and love into the city, even becoming a permanent resident. Not only does Colleen run the day to day operations at Made In The Mitten, but is also a mother to a now four year old, who you will frequently see running the cash register, if you're lucky. Colleen is a member of the Royal Oak Chamber Of Commerce, Michigan Women's Association, and puts on charity events for The Royal Oak Judson Center, and Gleaners Food bank yearly since 2009.
Made In The Mitten focuses to bring more families and free activities back to the Downtown Royal Oak area, and provide not only an art market, but a family friendly fun shopping atmosphere. Come enjoy a complimentary coffee from Detroit Bold, and we'll see you soon!
